    Need some more detail as there's a lot of difference between a company that is primarily a broker and one that concentrates on underwriting. A pure broker only outfit or one that does underwriting on behalf of others but really doesn't carry any significant level of loss risk themselves is likely to do even better with a high loss environment where their chargeable premiums and cut will increase in a hard market. On the flip side their claims side will be worked harder and cost more for them operate.

    I see BTL in a different light on reflection. The aim always was to displace housing from the OO sector into a free float available to rent out as an enabler for huge levels of economic migration and immigration. It explains why there was so much of a light touch at every level, finance, regulation, taxation.

    No argument from me re. Brown's abilities, absolute charlatan, but he also rambled on about New World Order and seemed very keen on delivering that, double bubble.

    China Starts "Debt Shaming": New App Warns Users If They Are Walking Near Someone In Debt
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-22/china-starts-debt-shaming-new-app-warns-users-if-they-are-walking-near-someone-debt
    Authorities in the northern Chinese province of Hebei have rolled out an app over WeChat which can tell people if they're walking near someone in debt, according to China Daily. 
    The program, aptly named "map of deadbeat debtors," flashes a warning if someone in debt is within a 500-meter radius - showing their exact location according to a screenshot of the app. 

    Whether the app reveals the debtors' names or photos is unknown, nor does China Daily mention how much money is owed or to whom - but according to paper the app allows people to "whistle-blow on debtors capable of paying their debts."
    "It's a part of our measures to enforce our rulings and create a socially credible environment," said a spokesman for the Higher People's Court of Hebei - which is behind the app.

    A lot of sub contractors are being screwed down at the moment, which ripples down the line, and unfortunately they pushed this guy too far. You can't condone what he did, but this will ripple back up the line at some point and a lot of companies buying work on easy credit and cheap labour will fall by the wayside, and the people that know what they are doing (and have tangible assets rather than bully bosses) will survive. Construction is the first in and first out of a recession, and it doesn't look too good in my opinion now.

    Sometimes to look at an argument frame it in the opposite way, what is the absolute antithesis of protectionism? What does it mean to totally not protect your own economy/lifestyle/historical norms/decision making processes and legal structure?  Sounds like the sort of thing that happens when a country loses in a war.

    Yes I previously thought of him in a fairly positive way as the best PM of my lifetime.
    Given recent pronouncements of his it looks more like he didn’t shaft everyone when PM simply because he didn’t dare to do so, rather than because he thought it was wrong.

    John Major for one has revealed his true globalist colours over the last couple of years.  He certainly had me fooled at the time.

    They all follow the same globalist agenda. From thatcher forward, they have been implementing the same anti democratic, anti nation, globalist polices. All of them.

    In the UK it was helicopter money for chosen people.My friend gets £1800 a month in benefits sat on the sofa at home.The BOE monetized the entire tax credit bill for 7 years.It flows through those people to asset owners.The winners are asset owners and benefit claims.The losers savers and anyone who works.

    Only because the Cameron govt was too gutless to do it’s traditional disagreeable Tory job and cleanup the mess left by Labour. They carried on many of the Blair/Brown policies and are now every bit as guilty, although they didn’t start it all.

    Ever played with magnets - electromagnetism? We've got that one sussed - well enough to promote electromagnetic fields in metals and and almost permanent fields in superconductors which can exert huge forces, more than plenty to levitate trains in a maglev system.  Electromagnetic force is way stronger than gravitational force and it conveyable that an anti gravity device would actually ride the electromagnetic field of a planet.
